I have the Peterson clip on tuner but I had no idea how much better this StroboPlus HD would be! First, it's way larger than what it looks like in online pictures which is a good thing. The display is easy on the eyes and it makes tuning a breeze! Spend a little bit more on money and you won't regret this!
